Lovely peaceful location, comfortable cottage with everything we needed. We all enjoyed the French countryside and recommend a visit to Uzerche. We are already planning a return visit. (I think the pool is cool Malia age 8)

Nous avons passé un formidable séjour dans votre cottage. Les quinze jours de grand beau nous ont ravigotés pour au moins une année. Mercie pour votre accueil.

Feeling very, very relaxed after 2 weeks of glorious sunshine and scenery, french food & wine with the odd bit of sightseeing thrown in. Good area and place for painting, thoroughly enjoyable.

Excellent séjour las de la grande semaine de l’élevage à Pompadour même si les juments Palma et Petchora u’ont pas été á hauteur des espérances des cavaliers et propriétaires…. Le gîte, la piscine, le calme, tout était parfait ! Rendez vous l'année prochaine pour de meilleures performances.

Thank You Penny & Jim for a very restful and relaxing retreat!  It would not have been the same holiday without your never-ending attention to detail - particularly for our babies!  Arrived very stressed but leaving very peaceful and relaxed.  All down to you both (and our new friends the alpacas!) Merci mille fois et à bientôt.

A perfect cottage, surprisingly spacious and comfortable.  So quiet and safe for the children.  It's been a real joy for us all.  So many lovely excursions nearby.  A wonderfully special place.  Lubersac pool 5 mins. 10/10.  Bussiere Galant 30 mins 10/10 (lake,velo rail, adventure park)

After a turbulent year this was heaven on earth! peaceful and cosy, comfort and beautiful.  You know how to give a good holidayand the rest was easy in this wonderful french area.

Swaan family, Belgium. September 2012


Penny Cottage is inderdaad 'the place to be' als je op zoek bent naar zalige rust, een prachtige omgeving en èchte natuur.
Penny en Jim hebben van dit stekje een heel mooi vakantieplekje gemaakt, waar je de volle 100% kan genieten van 'la douce France'.
Kinderen kunnen hier hun hart ophalen, met het zwembad, de alpaca's en de fietsen die Jim perfect in orde gezet heeft. Ook de omgeving is een bezoekje waard. Kortom, als je op zoek bent naar een perfecte vakantie, één adres, Penny Cottage.
